Deborah is undoubtedly one of the best instructors for Art Humanities. She is neither patronising nor pedantic; rather, she strives to engage students in an actual discourse concerning the work. There is no homework for the class besides a minimal amount of reading (only every three of four classes), and the papers are entirely non-research based. She definitely knows her stuff, and is one of the few teachers of art history whom I have encountered who are able to instruct students with no art background as to how to appropriately discuss art within an historical and compositional context. She is outstanding, and every student, who wants to truly learn about art during Art Hum, should try to get her. She is a wholly phenomenal instructor.
